By any measure, cloud computing has moved with extraordinary rapidity from a concept to real-world practice. New companies continue to discover the immense benefits of cloud computing, and it seems they like what they see.
In a survey just released by Navint Partners, chief information officers and other executives from companies exceeding 5,000 employees were by and large satisfied with their organizations’ transitions to cloud computing. A large majority said that they had achieved savings, increased efficiency, and gained a new competitive advantage.
Although it will take a number of years before the full power of cloud computing is unleashed for public and private use, the survey’s respondents predict rapid future growth. This finding corroborates other reports which suggest that at least three more years will be needed for full development. Two major areas that require further development, as reported in the survey, are privacy and data security. But as these issues are tackled, even further growth in the technology is expected.
